Some key considerations as you prepare your proposal:
- Proposal abstract should be a brief one-paragraph summary of the presentation as it would appear in the conference program guide.
- Include as much detail as possible about the presentation in your description.
- Include 3 learning objectives or audience takeaways in your description.
- Gear the presentation towards an audience at the intermediate to advanced level of understanding, rather than basic treatments or overviews.
- Proposals will be reviewed by NACUBO members from a variety of institutions as well as NACUBO staff. They will be looking at value added to the field and the level of theoretical vs. practical application. NACUBO tries to ensure that we offer timely, relevant content that will appeal to a wide variety of attendees from many types of institutions and content in a variety of subject areas. We are looking for content that will expose our members to new approaches and resources.
- Content submitted for this program may also be considered for publications, online learning programs, or other conferences/workshops.
Proposals were being accepted for 75-minute concurrent sessions and corporate showcases. Programming will occur Sunday, July 14, 2013 through Tuesday, July 16, 2013. Eight to ten educational sessions will run concurrently in two to three time slots per day.
NACUBO continues to focus on programming of interest to institutions of similar type and size. If your presentation specifically addresses the needs of a particular group, we encourage you to indicate this by adding the appropriate constituent group(s) in the keyword field. The four constituent groups are:
- Community Colleges: Two-year public institutions
- Comprehensive/Doctoral Institutions: Four-year public and independent institutions with enrollments above 3,000; Carnegie class - Masters colleges and universities, doctoral universities
- Research Universities: Public and independent research universities, medical schools
- Small Institutions: Four-year public and independent institutions with enrollments fewer than 3,000; also includes two-year independent colleges and independent secondary schools.
